Hidden eggs and hatchlings on a scroll

Hiding (or fogging) refers to hiding an egg or unfrozen hatchling in a mass of thick fog to prevent it from gaining views. Hiding is usually used to help an egg or hatchling recover from sickness.

Growing creatures are unable to mature while hidden. Even if an egg has enough views to hatch, it will remain an egg until it is removed from the fog. Hatchlings may reach their second stage while fogged, but they cannot become adults until they are unhidden.

While it is hidden in the fog, the owner of the creature can view its lineage but other users cannot. Most actions and Breed Specific Actions cannot be performed on a hidden creature. However, hiding does not keep an egg safe from the effects of Earthquake, and hidden eggs may still be Warded to prevent death from sickness. Eggs and hatchlings currently being Teleported cannot be hidden unless the teleport is cancelled.

When the player hides an egg or hatchling, this message is displayed:

"You cast a spell to hide the egg/hatchling in a thick cloud of fog."

When the player unhides the egg or hatchling, this message is displayed:

"You magically dispel fog around the egg/hatchling."

Only the owner can see the dragon's info page while it is hidden. Other users will see:

"You can't seem to find the dragon you're looking for."

When the owner views the dragon's view or lineage page while it is hidden, the owner will see:

Hidden Egg/Hatchling "This egg/hatchling is currently hidden. Others will not be able to view this page."
